Ravneet Bittu, BJP candidate from Ludhiana, today said he was confident of winning Ludhiana Lok Sabha seat on the basis of his report card, his commitment to the people of his constituency and the ‘magic’ of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s personality and vision.

My first two priorities after winning the seat would be setting up of AIIMS and Industrial Park. Punjab is lacking in secondary and tertiary healthcare and AIIMS will provide better health services to Ludhiana, and enable direct employment avenues for around 5,000 people.
